An international jury and the IPF (Independent Production Fund) Board of Directors reviewed and evaluated all of the web series projects submitted for Phase 2 funding. The Board has approved funding for the production of The Vault, the latest digital series from Producer Sara Martins, and Lost Journey Productions Inc.
One hundred and seventy-one applications were submitted to the IPF from across Canada in the first stage of the application process. Twenty-nine (29) of these were short-listed by a 40-member pre-selection committee. In the final evaluation stage, an international jury and IPF Board members reviewed all of the finalists and rated them based on content, audience engagement strategies, production styles and processes, business and marketing plans, distribution and revenue potential.
